California bikes different from 49-state?

I'm in the process of selling my current bike and starting to look for K12GTs (in black only, says my wife with good taste :-)). Are California bikes any different from Gen 2, 49-state K1200LTs?

There's no difference for BMW's sold in different states.

Pacific NorthWet
'13 Dark Graphite Metallic K16GTLD, 24K miles and counting...
'09 Magnesium Beige Metallic K13GT, 60K miles miles and counting...
'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold
BMWLT#145, IBA# 366, MOA# 111996, SCMA# 24032

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
